  • BAILEY-HAGUE PRAISES MIGHTON’S X-CUT™ CROSS JOINTER

    Bailey HagueHaving recently launched its own brand range of machinery earlier this year, Mighton Products gave some of its customers the opportunity to provide honest reviews of the machines they have purchased. Timber window and door specialists Bailey-Hague Joinery recently purchased one of the latest additions to the range, the Mighton X-Cut™ machine which produces perfect cross-joints on glazing beads, and praised its speed and accuracy.

    “We choose the X-Cut machine because we were hoping the promise of simple set-up and ease of use would make life easier for our employees and improve joint accuracy.” explained Robert Bailey-Hague of the Leeds-based company.

    “Six months on and we wouldn’t change a thing. The machine is quick and easy to set up and has increased not only the speed of our production but also the accuracy. Our Mighton representative set the machine up for us and gave us full training on how to use it. The Mighton demo van visit we booked was really beneficial, and gave us a lot more confidence in our purchase, having seen how the machine worked first.“

    Bailey-Hague Joinery has been a customer of Mighton Products for several years, buying beading and paint and making use of its colour matching service. Set up by Robert 15 years ago after being inspired by his late grandfather to become a skilled carpenter, Bailey-Hague now employs seven people and has become a specialist in the manufacture and installation of bespoke timber windows, doors and kitchens.

    The Mighton machinery range came about after the company saw an opening to devise its own brand range of low-cost machinery, designed to make joinery production quicker, easier and more efficient, as Chairman Mike Derham explains:

    “Our mission when we set about developing these machines was to partner with skilled Craftsmen like Bailey Hague and provide them with products that speed up manufacturing and deliver long lasting end results."

    The semi-automatic X-Cut™ joint cutting machine produces perfect cross-joints on glazing beads and comes complete with tooling to suit the timber profile of the user’s choosing. Accurate and consistent, it allows for simple tool change and no lengthy manuals mean it is simple to set up and easy to operate. The machine is adjustable to accept bead profiles measuring from 9mm to 19mm in height and 12mm to 38mm in width and any lengths over 500mm can be used with the option to add extending arms.

    Demonstrations of any machine in the range are available through the new Mighton Mobile Demonstration Vehicles. The demonstrations give customers the opportunity for a live demo with a Mighton expert, and see first-hand how to get the most out of a potential purchase. There is also a choice of flexible finance options, making the machines easily attainable for small to medium joinery companies.

  • HIGH PRAISE FOR MIGHTON MACHINERY FROM CLAREMONT JOINERY

    PR5369As part of its ongoing quest to make joinery production quicker, easier and more efficient for both the small or large-scale operator, Mighton Products recently launched its own brand range of machinery and has reached out to its customers for their reviews on the range.

    Gateshead-based joinery specialist Claremont Joinery purchased both the Mighton X-Cut™ and Scribe-It™ machines and was quick to praise the speed and accuracy of cut the machines gave. “We purchased the machines three months ago as we wanted to improve the ease and speed of production without compromising on accuracy, and I’m pleased to say there isn’t any aspect of the machinery we would change.

    “Production times have improved and there are no bottleneck issues with producing the windows due to waiting for beads to be cut. The machines were incredibly easy to set up and operate following a helpful demonstration from Mighton’s Dale Cook.”

    The semi-automatic Scribe-It™ machine is designed to scribe the end of timber profiles quickly and efficiently, increasing throughput and efficiency. The machine can complete a full cutting cycle in just 15 seconds and is compatible with any profile up to 45mm wide and 35mm deep. Using two cutters the machine allows for the shaping of the bead to be done in two halves and this method safeguards against issues such as the bead splitting or spelching at the end.

    Producing perfect cross-joints on glazing beads, the semi-automatic X-Cut™ joint cutting machine comes complete with tooling to suit the timber profile of the user’s choosing. Accurate and consistent, it allows for simple tool change and no lengthy manuals mean it is simple to set up and easy to operate. The machine is adjustable to accept bead profiles measuring from 9mm to 19mm in height and 12mm to 38mm in width and any lengths over 500mm can be used with the option to add extending arms.

    Taking advantage of a visit from the Mighton Mobile Demonstration Vehicle, Claremont was able to see the machines working before purchasing. The demonstrations give customers the prime opportunity for a live demo with a Mighton expert, seeing first-hand how to get the most out of a potential purchase and ask any questions they may have. There is also a choice of flexible finance options available, making both machines easily attainable for small to medium joinery companies.

    Chairman Mike Derham said: “We consistently look at ways to develop and improve our product range in order to make it easier for master joiners to produce the highest quality end results in the most efficient way possible. Developing these machines that speed up the manufacturing process and enable us to partner with skilled craftsmen such as Claremont Joinery was always the outcome we were aiming for.”

    With 35 years’ experience in the industry, Claremont Joinery is a family business that has grown into one of the North East’s leading providers of joinery services, earning itself a reputation for quality, bespoke craftsmanship. The company works on both domestic projects and contract work, and has an experienced team to cover all aspects of joinery work.

    Claremont has been purchasing hardware and machines from Mighton for over a decade, and is now looking to using the company’s range of paints and coatings in the near future.

  • MIGHTON PRODUCTS EXPANDS WITH NEW WAREHOUSE

    new warehouseMighton has completed a new warehouse that will allow it to expand its existing on-site warehousing capacity and help cater for increased demand from new and existing customers.

    The company manufactures and distributes a wide range of products, including those designed specially for the timber sash and casement window market, and says the addition of the warehouse is part of a larger expansion plan that will aim to further improve and expand its product offering.

    Mighton’s chairman, Mike Derham said: “We already offer a comprehensive range of over 2,000 market leading sash, casement and door products, and the completion of our new warehouse, which started in February this year, is part of a larger investment that will allow us to develop that offering even further, including our new and exclusive Mighton Ultra range of exterior paints and coatings for joinery, as well as range of high quality portable woodworking machines for joinery.

    “The introduction of the new warehouse will also allow us to offer a bigger and better trade counter for our customers,” Mike continued. “We are one of the oldest and most respected suppliers of hardware in the UK, and this recent expansion is another landmark in the history of the company as we continue to grow and improve. The bigger warehouse has also meant we can take on two new employees, which together with the investment in stock and capacity, will ensure we have a great team in place to help meet future demand and further advance our customer service.”

  • MIGHTON PARTNER ANKER STUY GIVES SEATING A GREAT FINISH IN ABBEY RENOVATION

    Westminster AbbeyMighton Products partner Anker Stuy Verven (ASV) has been selected as supplier of the colour stains and lacquers for the new seating as part of a prestigious yearlong renovation of Westminster Abbey that was finally completed in June of this year.

    As part of the interior maintenance works that took place at the iconic London landmark 2,200 wooden chairs, with the Westminster Abbey Arms embossed in to each of the backrests, were commissioned and have now become the new primary form of seating distributed throughout the building.

    The finish for these chairs carries a series of heavy demands and therefore required an exemplary quality lacquer capable of providing long lasting protection against candle wax, as well as tough resistance against scratches and abrasions. The 2-component ASV lacquer that was eventually specified complies with the EN 71-3 standard, certifying it free from heavy metals and even suitable for use on children's toys, as well as complying with both DIN 4102 B1 and DIN 68861 B1 standards, which demonstrates its chemical resistance.

    However, it was not just the technical performance of this finish that was under high scrutiny but also its aesthetic appeal. Finding the right colour stain that could give the lacquer its desired hue proved to be a challenging process with eight individual shades of brown being developed from ASV’s HD LM Color stain before a selection was finally made.

    Emile Stuy, Export Manager at ASV, said: "The finished Abbey Chair has an aesthetically beautiful appearance through the blunt-molded finish, making it perfect for the architecture and ambience of the Abbey. Being part of the process that made these chairs a reality, alongside Leon Volk, owner of our Netherlands based dealer Oxid Coatings, gave us the rare opportunity to work on such a prestigious and challenging project.”

    Mighton has been distributing Anker Stuy products to its specialist joinery customers throughout the UK since 2016 with next day delivery and a simple pricing structure which has seen a decidedly positive response. Since the completion of the Westminster Abbey project Mighton has also added the full range of specialist timber treatments, including interior finishes, to its established range of paints and coatings that are finding increasing favour with joinery manufacturers. Mighton plans to also include the addition of paints and coatings for other, non-timber, applications in the near future.

  • WELL-TRAVELLED STAIRCASES GAIN THE MIGHTON FINISH

    York Uni

    A striking cladding design was created for a pair of staircases at York University with installation being completed within the students’ three-week spring break, despite having to be constructed on site before being dismantled and removed for painting then brought back for reassembly.

    The unusual design incorporated 10mm shadow gaps, which required finishing in-situ to ensure the accuracy of the gaps before the MDF panels could be factory painted, as Robert Bailey-Hague, MD of subtractor Bailey-Hague Joinery explained:

    “Everything had to be completed within the strict schedule but this was the only way it could be done. The shadow gaps were an important part of the overall look of the staircases and it would have been impossible to achieve that by fitting painted panels on site. At the same time, on-site painting would have been out of the question, not least because of ventilation in the enclosed space.”

    Specialist paint supplier Mighton Products worked closely with Bailey-Hague Joinery in not only in choosing the right materials but also in producing a colour match for the non-standard grey that was specified. The company had been using Mighton’s exterior products so had no hesitation in putting its interior range to work.

    A team of five joiners and one spray-painter worked on the project, with the panels making the 30 mile-plus round trip to Bayley-Hague’s spray-shop in Sherburn-in-Elmet. The moisture resistant MDF was treated with Mighton Ultra high-build MDF Internal Primer and Internal Opaque Topcoat.

    Robert Bailey-Hague concluded: “It took a bit of careful management and planning to do it to the right specification and within the time limits but the finished product looks good and the client is very happy with it.”
